Highlight Topic

Handling crisis, from pandemics to climate change...

We are increasingly confronted with complex and challenging scenarios in our day to day lives and recently none more so than the convergence of our two most pressing global health threats — the rapid emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic and the insidiously evolving climate crisis. Both these crises disproportionately harm the health of vulnerable and economically disadvantaged people and demand unprecedented scientific efforts.

One day of the school is dedicated to our highlight topic : Handling crisis from pandemics to climate change with several guest-speakers to present their expertise and the contributions made by the scientific community in reaction to these crisis.

We are delighted to welcome the following speakers (TBC) :

Authors: A. Dziewa, S. Kleiner, S. Schadegg & L. Ulrici - CERN

Speaker: S. Kleiner

Environmentally Responsible Research at CERN

CERN has always taken environmental considerations into account when designing and implementing new infrastructures. However, environmental priorities have evolved significantly over the last two decades and CERN adapts its infrastructure and associated activities accordingly. Anticipating future environmental concerns, including the prevention of environmental incidents, is the motivation behind CERN’s vision for environmentally responsible research.

This talk will present how CERN is organized to manage and predict environmental issues, in particular linked to energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water, biodiversity and waste. Furthermore, the talk will highlight the current and future projects aimed at limiting the impact of the Organization on the environment.
